AAA Editor Notes

Johnstown Flood National Memorial is at 733 Lake Rd. The memorial is on the site of the former South Fork Dam. When the dam broke and sent a 40-foot wall of water crashing through the Conemaugh Valley in 1889, Johnstown was devastated and more than 2,200 people died. The visitor center presents a 35-minute film titled “Black Friday” and contains a model of the dam as well as exhibits about local geography and events leading up to the flood. Rangers conduct programs in summer. Picnicking is permitted. Time: Allow 1 hour minimum.
